  • The ranking of tours, activities, and experiences available on Tripadvisor is determined by several factors including the revenue generated by Tripadvisor from these bookings, the frequency of user clicks, and the volume and quality of customer reviews. Occasionally, newly listed offerings may be prioritized and appear higher in the list. The specific placement of these new listings may vary.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My experience with Mr. Numan as our tour guide in Istanbul was truly exceptional. His deep knowledge of the city's history, culture, and landmarks made our tour both informative and engaging. Mr. Numan's passion for sharing his insights and anecdotes added an extra layer of depth to our experience, making it memorable and enriching. His professionalism, friendliness, and attention to detail were remarkable, ensuring that every aspect of our tour was well-organized and enjoyable. I highly recommend Mr. Numan to anyone visiting Istanbul, as he truly made our time in the city unforgettable with his amazing guidance.

    This tour is not to be missed! Book it for one of the first days in Istanbul because you’ll want to go back to each location! This wasn’t a tour of touristy “must sees” but instead a tour of local “must eats”. One of the best parts? Other than the food I mean…you don’t plan a thing! You just follow. Tables were set up at each restaurant for our group and we didn’t have to wait for anything. We loved all the food samples, the drinks, the history and culture info, Leyla our guide, and our amazing group! We had the perfect variety of food which made us feel we were getting a true taste of Turkey. We walked quite a bit in between bites, so we felt satisfied but not stuffed. Leyla was full of knowledge, sharing fun tidbits about the culture. We walked streets we probably would not have visited otherwise, while trying some local favorites along the way. We had our two girls, five and fifteen, who both equally remained entertained and enjoyed the tour. Our five year old was made to feel like a princess, which helped to keep her interest. I highly suggest this tour as a MUST DO while here. I can only imagine that every food tour ihe future will have a hard time comparing with this experience. We will have memories for a long time!

    Very nice tour. We were picked up in a van at our hotel and transported to the area where we started our tour. We saw all the big sights and received lots of valuable insights and historical information. Our guide was very kind and did a nice job explaining things to us. His English was very good and we enjoyed our time with him.

    Nice way to see Istanbul’s incredible monuments by night and get a flavor of Turkish culture/dances.

    There are a number of choices and for cruises, finally went through TripAdvisor. Planning through TripAdvisor was easy, Pickup and drop off was perfect. It’s not obvious which your company you’re going with as the boats have their own names. Worked out fine.

    Took the half day tour - Top Sites of Istanbul - and it exceeded expectations. Jason was our guide and he was so knowledgeable and took photos for everyone at all the best spots. The Basilica Cistern was absolutely amazing, the Blue Mosque was my personal favorite and the Hagia Sophia was incredible. It was such an engaging tour and I am so happy that we did it. At the end of the tour Jason took us to a carpet store that we absolutely loved and actually bought a beautiful carpet.

    The views of the mosques are beautiful during the day, but don’t forget to go back in the evening as they are spectacular!

    The tour is well organized and the hotel cave we stayed at was great. We appreciated that the airport transfers and flights were included. Omer (our guide) was incredibly knowledgeable and was very gracious and kind. He also went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and was happy to answer all our questions (about history, culture, day-to-day life, etc) - we hope our paths cross again! The hot air balloon was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Very informative guide and friendly staff on the sunset tour. Nice snacks and drinks. It was a little chilly so blankets were provided.
    I would definitely recommend it.

    A wonderful afternoon, enhanced by unusually sunny weather for February. Warm welcoming crew, great guide with a wealth of information and a dry sense of humour that made the tour both fascinating and good fun. This is relaxing and brilliant way to get an introduction to Istanbul. Thoroughly recommend.

    We had such great time and amazing experience with our guide Ezgi, who was so knowledgeable, so passionate about her work and sharing Turkey’s wonderful culture and history. She was flexible and attentive to all our needs during our travel. Best memories ever!

    I recently went on my first guided tour, and to be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I’m not usually a big fan of guided activities, and I had been to Istanbul before for a business meeting, which showed me the city’s excellent food scene. However, my expectations were completely exceeded. Firstly, our guide Furkan was incredibly knowledgeable and had a fun personality. He made the tour enjoyable and engaging. Secondly, we went to a kebab shop that served the best kebab I have ever had. The chef cooked it right in front of us. Thirdly, we received a warm welcome from the waitress, staff, and even the people on the street. I had a fantastic day eating and exploring the city. I will definitely be back soon and I look forward to taking more tours with Furkan.

    My friend and I are visiting Istanbul for a few days, and we booked this tour last minute. Despite us being the only ones, Salih gave us a lovely tour of the Asia and Europe sides of Istanbul, and we tried lots of amazing foods and drinks. Highly recommend to any foodies!
